Robin and I are truly thankful for this opportunity to return to the camino. We are also very happy to be reprising the liturgical music "dream team" of John Rafferty (organist), Stephen Shields (tenor) and Robin Pigott (soprano). These three made some very memorable music this past summer and we hope to top that over the Christmas holidays. It will be a wonderful conclusion to our Via de la Plata and to Stephen and John's Camino Ignaciano. The pilgrim community is a curious place to inhabit. Just when one seems to feel comfortable in one's skin something calls us to move just a bit beyond our usual boundaries. This is where conventional wisdom tells us that growth is to be found. We shall see.
Robin and I have always trusted the Spirit to guide us. This pilgrimage, in that regard, will be no different. But, as always, each journey comes as it will and we simply have to embrace whatever circumstances that might draw near. So this is our approach, be open to the Spirit within us, be grateful for the strength and resources to walk, and to be mindful of those who need our prayers. Now all Robin has to figure out is how to sing Silent Night in Spanish. But we have some time....well sort of....stay tuned!
